Ava Phillippe and her famous mom Reese Witherspoon have always looked a lot alike, but as Ava gets older, the similarities just seem to get more uncanny. They are one celeb mom and daughter duo who are taking it to a whole new level of twinning. It’s not even that they’re trying — it’s just genetics! Ava turned 16 yesterday, and proud mama Reese posted a pic of the lovely teen on her Instagram and the Internet is flipping out.
Reese uploaded this collage pic of an Ava as an adorable tot back in the day and as a stunning young lady now. She wrote in the caption, “Wow! My sweet girl turns 16 today! I am so blessed to have such a kind, compassionate, brilliant, artistic, all-around wonderful daughter who makes me a better person everyday. I love you @avaphillippe”
While the caption is super sweet, take another look at the photo. Um, get chills yet? Yeah, Ava and her mom look like they could be twins. Don’t believe us? Take a look at this 1996 photo of Reese when she was only four years older than Ava is now.
Happy birthday, Ava!
